Come On In--Taylor and Trynlee's Room

When we designed our house, we knew that we would be trying for more children so planned for the nursery to be right across the hall from our room.  We also designed for it to transition well into an office when our kids are older.  I had it mapped out perfectly as to where I would put the crib and the matching dresser.

Fast forward to our first ultrasound in May of 2017 when our house was only a couple of months from being finished.  We were in that dark ultrasound room when the sonographer excitedly showed us our baby's heartbeat and then scanned over a bit and said, "And there are two!"  After struggling with infertility and a late miscarriage, Gavin and I were over the moon to be to this point and just as over the moon to be entrusted with two sweet babies.  Don't get me wrong, there were moments of panic at the thoughts of twin complications and two newborns, but mostly excitement.

That perfectly mapped out nursery just wasn't going to fit two cribs though so we had to do some rethinking!  And to be honest, we would rethink it and never really came up with anything that I loved.  Every plan always ended up with a crib or dresser in front of the window which I just wasn't thrilled with.  The room isn't very big and only has two walls without windows.  We originally had a bench seat planned to go in between the two closets and under the window but when the Amish delivered all of our cabinetry, they had forgot to make the bench seat.  I had mentioned several times that we shouldn't have done the bench seat and instead should have a dresser built for that space.  I promise I didn't call them and cancel the bench seat order, but after it didn't show up, I quickly met with them to make the dresser! :-)

Without further ado, COME ON IT to Taylor and Trynlee's room!
When they were itty bitty babies, Gavin would sit in the rocker in the middle of the night and I would sit on the ottoman to feed them.  We could do it with our eyes clothes by the time they were 6 months old.
I ordered their name signs from Etsy.  Click HERE for the exact link.  I actually ordered them as I was sitting in the NICU one day and the nursery sat as a collection space from when we moved.  
One of the cribs was Treyton's and then we just had the Amish make us a matching one.  They will eventually convert to full size beds.  The matching dresser that we had originally had with the crib is in Treyton's room.

Their sheets are from Carousel Designs.  I have two different light pink designed ones.  The ones in the pictures can be found HERE.  I had crib skirts from Pottery Barn when their mattresses were higher.
Their curtains match the crib skirts but I didn't see them on the website any longer.
And that's all there is!

Have a great Monday and a great start to your week!  Next up is a weekend recap...that my computer is still working on loading! #soannoying
